"So delicious! Even my picky son ate every bite! I added 2 extra slices of crumble bacon. I used the pre-cooked kind. It was so good! I will definitely add this to my list of favorites!"

"I made this yummy quiche for our Sunday brunch this morning and everyone loved it! I will definitely be making it again!"
